An Illinois DUI Lawyer Explains - DUI is permanent . . . unless . . .
A DUI finding of guilty, whether you receive supervision or a conviction, creates a record with the Illinois Secretary of State, and also a criminal record. A criminal background check when you're looking for a new job or a promotion might yield an unpleasant surprise, even if you thought a supervision would eventually "go away".
In addition, Illinois law prohibits expungement or sealing of a DUI if you were found guilty. You need to be very careful to consult a knowledgable Illinois DUI lawyer before negotiating a plea of guilty in your DUI, as the consequences can be very far reaching indeed.
